WIM HENDERICKX SUTRA

For Flow, her second Pentatone recording, clarinettist Annelien Van Wauwe pairs two concertos written specifically for basset clarinet (aka basset horn). Mozart’s is perhaps the most famous clarinet concerto of all time, although it was originally composed for the basset clarinet. Wim Henderickx’s Sutra is definitely the newest concerto for basset clarinet, complete with electronics and chanting. It was co-commissioned by Annelien Van Wauwe, with her 2018 Borletti-Buitoni Award and BBC Radio 3. She gives the public world premiere with the BBC Scottish Symphony and Martyn Brabbins on 31 March in Glasgow, with the recording, made in December 2021, released the following day.

BRAHMS STRING QUARTETS & SECOND STRING QUINTET

For its debut Rubicon Classics CD, the Dudok Quartet Amsterdam has re-discovered all three Brahms String Quartets as well as, with violist Lilli Maijala, his Second String Quintet. For the first time in the recorded catalogue, this repertoire is performed on on gut strings and early Romantic bows, which allows both players and listeners to appreciate afresh these works with the subtle sonorities Brahms himself would have recognised.

The finale of Bach’s unfinished masterpiece The Art of Fugue, in Filippo Gorini’s new recording for Alpha Classics released on 27 August 2021, is the Fuga a 3 soggetti, breaking off exactly where Bach stopped composing.  Gorini’s new recording marks the start of an ambitious project The Art of Fugue Explored, which will encompass a film and a series of videos of conversations with the likes of Alfred Brendel, Frank Gehry, Alexanders Polzin and Sokurov and Mitsuko Uchida to investigate Bach’s final masterpiece.  This video was released on the day the recording was released.
